Who am I?
Good question, wish I knew...
I'm Brazilian and have an undergraduate degree in Agricultural Enginnering. I also have a masters degree and I'm currently working on a doctorate at CENA-USP.
What I do?
For my masters I inserted the Thorthwaite-Mather water balance inside ARC-Info (I know I know, was not very fluent in GRASS back then) and did a water balance for the Ji-Paraná river basin (western Amazon). The dissertation can be found here. Just search for Daniel Victoria. The title is: Estimativa da evapotranspiração da bacia do Ji-Paraná (RO) através de técnicas de sensoriamento remoto e geoprocessamento. - in portuguese.
Just so you know, I did use GRASS in my masters! I coded a simple bash+perl script for automatic cloud detection. The script is based on the following paper:
Simpson, J. J. Gobat, J. I. Improved Cloud Detection for Daytime AVHRR Scenes over Land REMOTE SENSING OF ENVIRONMENT. 1996, VOL 55; NUMBER 1, pages 21-49
Curently I'm working on the water modeling of the Amazon basin using the VIC model and hopfully will link that to a biogeochemical transport model
Where am I at?
I live in Piracicaba, São Paulo state, Brazil
Start helping Paulo Marcondes (pmarc) in translating GRASS to portuguese
Some of my published works
...will do it later...
